thus far, we are eager to help Save the Children, as they aim to reach 760,100
children and adults in immediate and long-term relief programs. Recent
estimates indicate that Haiyan has affected 13.1 million people, and caused
5,235 deaths, damaging or destroying some 1.1 million homes. Save the Children
plays a crucial role in an international relief effort, forming programs across
the affected regions, offering health care, nutritious food, clean water, and
shelter. Efforts are also in place to establish safe, supervised spaces for
children to play, learn, and do art projects, to help assuage anxiety and fear
caused by the catastrophe.
In addition to
Opie and Minter, the sale includes works by
designs, all of which are available exclusively on Artsy.
